78th Grand Prix de Monaco F1
20 - 23 May 2021
Porsche Supercup: Ten Voorde, the champion in pole position !
The defending Porsche Supercup champion, Larry ten Voorde, will start from pole position Sunday morning for the first round of the 2021 edition and the return to Monaco of the most spectacular of the single-brand formulas, created in 1993 by the German manufacturer. In his superb 510hp Porsche 911 GT3 sporting the famous Oranje made famous by Dutch footballers, ten Voorde dominated the qualifications and completed his fastest lap in 1: 33.099, 175 thousandths better than Jaxon Evans, the New Zealander from the Martinet by Almeras team.
The top trio of this beautiful qualifying session was completed by Frenchman Dorian Boccolacci, the former Formula 2 driver who starts in Supercup after having shone in the Porsche Carrera Cup last year. He will therefore start on the second row, Sunday morning at 10:30 am, with a real chance of podium and alongside German Christopher Zoechling, another serious customer.
Behind them, Turkey’s Ayhancan Güven will start next to another French driver, Florian Latorre. It was a really tough session, as ten drivers finished in less than one second, including another Frenchman, Steven Palette, in 10th place. There will be 8 Supercup rounds again this year, always as curtain-raisers for F1 on Sundays, and always in Europe.
